Oh to have the time to watch a bunch of movies. The summer movie season is upon us and I’m still watching fall releases. Anything you’re looking forward to? I would like to see a few of the blockbusters: Star Trek: Into Darkness, Man of Steel and maybe The Wolverine. There’s also the Seth Rogan apocalyptic comedy This is the End which stars the celebrities as themselves. I also hope to see some smaller films like Sundance favorite The Spectacular Now and the final installment of the Julie Delpy, Ethan Hawke trilogy, Before Midnight. There’s also a lot of exciting TV coming our way, too, from the Netflix released Arrested Development to the conclusions to both Breaking Bad and Dexter (will someone kill him? I’m kind of hoping so – isn’t that terrible?)
This Friday, for our Lunch and a Movie series, we are showing Promised Land, written by and starring Matt Damon and John Krasinski, about the fracking debate. Please join us at noon in the Auditorium – bring your lunch or just munch on some yummy popcorn!
